    I posted this vid here about 7 years ago and had mostly positive comments except for my
    handling of capped cylinders outside of the gun.:what:



    Many people asked how I was able to keep exchanging cylinders because anybody that owns one probably had cylinder jam problems.here is my answer to that sorry it ended up getting a little
    long as there was other hints I wanted to give.



    let me know if you see any safety misses I know of at least one LOL:scrutiny:

    I think you should install and remove cylinders with the hammer at half cock (which is the norm). If you'll notice in the second vid, the time you did remove at half cock, the cylinder fell out on its own. You have two options installing/removing a cylinder. Either the hand tension or the bolt tension to wrestle with. Hand tension is easy to deal with if you roll the cylinder as you install. Bolt tension with "from the factory" tension may be more problematic. Not to mention, the bolt will put a nice "beauty ring" on the cylinder in time. Also, with the hammer down, you have interference of the hammer as well. And also, removal/installation from the right side is "the norm". Removing/installing from the left allows the hand to engage the base pin hole rather than avoiding it altogether. Not ment to be argumentative, just trying to help.


    As far as ease of base pin removal, if you remove it each time and exchange cylinders or to load "off gun", it's not going to have much of a chance to bind. Continued reloading " on gun" the same cylinder is where binding becomes a problem.
    Nice videos though!!

    Yes I agree half cock is what i would normally do to remove and install cylinder I do find i need to "jiggle" a bit some times
    ill try more from the right to see if that helps with my need to jiggle.

    Yes, half cock it and place it on the right side, the bolt stop side and spin the cylinder clockwise. She'll spin right in. I've seen guys work the hammer back and forth with their thumb to jiggle the cylinder in like you do but always from the right side of the frame.

    Good video, Remington's are beasts!!!

    Those are the Glocks of the 19th century. Excellent firepower for the times, the ability to swap cylinders was a big bonus over the open tops of the day.

    I know Gary, couldn't resist it. Comparing a beautiful, sleek revolver to a, well, whatever you call those things.

    I've watched Damoc's first video about rapid firing a Remington at least a dozen times on Youtube. Didn't know who made it however.

    Always liked it.
